8 spring fashion trends for men: discover the pieces to add to your wardrobe in 2021

It’s hard to argue that spring is the season of hope. After a long winter, especially one tainted by the pandemic and its far-reaching effects, it feels good to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Do you want to be ready for the warm, sunny days ahead? The team at Ernest is on the lookout for the latest men’s fashion trends. Here are some of the clothes and accessories you should make space for in your closet this year.


  • Quilted coats and bomber jackets

Lightweight and versatile, a quilted coat checks all the boxes. With its casual athletic look, this outerwear is a simple and practical option. And with so many colours to choose from, you’re sure to find one that perfectly complements your spring outfits.

Another must this year is the aviator-inspired bomber jacket. If you want a unique, timeless look, consider one in navy. This is the jacket to wear if you want to head into the season with style and confidence.

  • Leather jackets

Year after year, the leather jacket continues to impress with its supple comfort. The flattering fit of this jacket — more refined than the classic biker look — makes it a great piece to have on hand in 2021.

Do you like timeless pieces? Keep in mind that a quality leather jacket with a hood, stand-up collar or contrast stitching is a long-term investment you won’t regret. This year’s colours are cognac and navy

  • Leaf and floral prints

There’s no better way to put the cold winter weather behind you than with botanical prints. Whether you opt for palm trees or flowers, a subtle pattern or a bold print, this is the season to experiment with pieces that catch the eye.

  • Pastels and bright colours

It wouldn’t be spring without a pop of colour. Whether you want all eyes on you or prefer to be discrete, your choice of colours is virtually endless. For example, you could opt for soft pastels on days when you just want to relax and go for a stroll.

For an evening in the city or a day spent lounging by the pool, however, don’t hesitate to make a statement with striking colours.

  • Shirts in bold colours

On a similar note, consider adding at least one funky shirt to your wardrobe for the season. Step outside of your comfort zone with a piece you wouldn’t have dared to wear before. Being willing to take risks and own your style is an attractive trait. Start with a casual shirt in a bold colour, as it can easily be worn with chinos or Bermuda shorts with the sleeves rolled up. Give it a try and watch your confidence soar.

  • Shirts worn under sport jackets or suits

This spring, stylish men are opting for a high-quality T-shirt or polo shirt worn beneath a sport jacket or suit to create a look that’s both professional and accessible. If you want a casual outfit you can wear anywhere, choose a light sweater as your base layer and save the dress shirt for more formal occasions.

  • Nautical styles and patterns


Shades of blue and white, horizontal stripes, anchors, ropes and buoys — anything that evokes life at sea is in style in the spring of 2021. Awaken your inner sailor with an assortment of well-chosen clothes and accessories.

  • Loafers and thick sole shoes

For days when there’s nothing pressing, slip on a pair of loafers or moccasins. These shoes were made for lazy days. Comfortable, light and easy to pair with any outfit, leather loafers are perfect for weekend shopping trips or taking a stroll around town with your significant other. In 2021, thick sole shoes are also a go-to option to finish off stylish, athletic looks.
